Letter to the Editor

Penny Gray

An open letter to Judge Burkeen, Commissioners and citizens of Limestone County,


After reading the letter in the Mexia News Dated April, 18, I feel compelled to tell “the rest of the story for LCFA.  Although I’m not a member of the board, I’ve volunteered with them for 10 years or more.  LCFA is a 501(c)(3) organization formed for the purpose of providing a means for the youth of the county to raise and learn about animal management and o provide scholarship to at least one graduating senior from each high school in our county.  Last year we were able to provide 3 scholarships to each school.  LCFA is a volunteer organization and none of the board members receive any type of compensation.

Let me begin by saying we thank the judge and the commissioners for their continued support through the years of the youth activities in Limestone county--not only the LCFA, but 4-H and FFA activities as well as horse clinics on a weekly basis for the youth of Limestone County.
